The best minimal shoes in our 2020 Product Awards

Best Minimal Shoe: Winner

Running in minimal shoes is an interesting experience, and one which many runners rave about. And of the brands that support near-barefoot running, Vivobarefoot makes minimalist shoes like no other brand. Its new ESC Tempest shoes were runaway winners in this category. Anna said: “I was hugely impressed by the company’s ethics and the fact the shoe is made from by-products.  ey were incredibly comfortable on. I’d de nitely recommend to friends concerned with their environmental impact, as this delivers by the bucketload. Flexible, with a sole that grips pavements, this made running feel natural without any issues or pain. Adventure racers, aquathletes and water sports enthusiasts will love this model.”

Best Minimal Shoe: Editor’s Choice
VIVOBAREFOOT Primus Trail FG£120

The ethical creds are amazing; this is a really responsible company that we rate highly. These look brilliant, and perform with grip and gusto on trails. The fi t is snug with lots of room in the toebox where it’s needed. It’s a double win for Vivobarefoot!
